There is a gentleman who lives near my bus stop who I see roughly twice a week. Every time he sees me, he starts yelling “Hello! Hey! Helloooo!” getting louder with each word. I wear headphones when I walk outside, mostly to drown out men like him. He saw me again this morning and, when I continued to ignore him, he reached out to grab my arm. I jogged across the street and kept moving.
